James Roberts’ time in South Sydney is expected to end next week. The center is expected to deviate from the last year of a lucrative contract.
It has been speculated that 27-year-old Roberts would cancel his $ 550,000-a-year Rabbitohs deal for a few months.

The center has struggled for form since moving from the Broncos in mid-2019. A chest injury and a stay in a mental health facility prevented him from getting out on the field.
That conversation has intensified over the past few weeks as the Bunnies signed Alex Johnston and made deals to Taane Milne and Tautau Moga.

They also have Campbell Graham, Dane Gagai, Braidon Burns, Steven Marsters and Latrell Mitchell on long term deals and have also been linked with Josh Addo-Carr.
Roberts, who last played for NSW in 2018, has a longstanding relationship with Rabbitoh’s trainer Wayne Bennett.

CLUBS THAT MIGHT BE IN THE MARKET FOR A CENTER
I signed Nick Cotric of Canberra to play at the center but his form at the end of the year showed how devastating a winger has become. Saw Tim Lafai and Kerrod Holland leave. Jake Averillo has just agreed to a new contract.
Farewell to Tim Lafai and Euan Aitken this season. Feagai twins Max and Mat sit behind Zac Lomax and Brayden Williame, but they struggled to sign Manly’s Moses Suli and offered him a $ 2 million deal over three years.
Bradman Best is the knights’ great hope for the future in the backline. Hymel Hunt and Enari Tuala terminated this contract this year. Both could be moved on if Newcastle had to make room.
I signed Tom Opacic, but also released Brad Takairangi. Michael Jennings’ future lies under a cloud due to a positive drug test while Waqa Blake’s defense is questioned.
It sounds ridiculous considering they just won the grand final, but Suliasi Vunivalu’s exit (super rugby) and Josh Addo-Carr’s return to Sydney could see Brenko Lee move to the wing. Marion Seve returns from an ACL and loanee Paul Momirovski returns to the Tigers. This could be the door for Roberts to go to Melbourne if they feel like him. If there’s a coach who can consistently deliver on Robert’s potential, Craig Bellamy is the man.
